Recent Star Wars News

As always, the guys discuss recent Star Wars news. Even though the Star Wars news came at a trickle this past week, a few stories emerged. Event though The Last Jedi arrives this December, Episode IX has a release date. The guys discuss when it is and their preferences. Despite the popularity of Ahsoka Tano, another character won the fan poll for Hasbro’s new Black Series Vintage line. Find out who in this episode. Plus, Rian Johnson made a big request of J.J. Abrams for the end of The Force Awakens. The guys discuss what it was and what it might mean in the news segment.

Behind the Actor’s Trailer

After discussing recent news, Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels debuts the backstory to one of the breakout characters of Rogue One. By breakout character, the guys mean none of the characters played by Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, or Jiang Wen. In fact, it also means no characters played by Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Jimmy Smits, or Genevieve O’Reilly. It isn’t Darth Vader, Grand Moff Tarkin, or Princess Leia either. Find out just who they are talking about in episode 28.
